The other day Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper spoke at Israel’s parliament. Rarely does Israel hear such an impassioned, pro-Israel speech on the floor of the Knesset, let alone from the leader of a foreign country.
The first speech in the Knesset by a Canadian prime minister was peppered with standing ovations, the enthusiastic likes of which may not have been seen since Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed the US Congress in 2011.
Statements like “through fire and water, Canada will stand with you” were met with rousing rounds of applause, and though clapping is against Knesset protocol, even Speaker Yuli Edelstein joined in.
The Canadian premier said he believes “it is right to support Israel because, after generations of persecution, the Jewish people deserve their own homeland and deserve to live safely and peacefully in that homeland.
“Let me repeat that: Canada supports Israel because it is right to do so,” he emphasized. “It is… a Canadian tradition to stand for what is principled and just, regardless of whether it is convenient or popular.” (JPost)
Unable to control himself at such a passionate outpouring of Zionist ethos, MK Ahmed Tibi from the Ra’am (United Arab List) – Ta’al party interrupted Harper’s speech spewing protected-freedom-of-speech lies: Israel’s is an apartheid state and the like…culminating that his fellow Arab MK, Taleb Abu Arar doesn’t even have water or electricity in his village.
It’s unfortunate that the world takes every word from MK Tibi’s mouth as sacred.
Not only does MK Taleb Abu Arar’s village (and personal home) have water, sewage, electricity, gas delivery, garbage removal, telephone/high speed internet infrastructure and free State sponsored education, but MK Taleb Abu Arar’s impoverished and apartheid home also has Satellite TV.
Here’s an easy tip to know when MK Dr. Ahmed Tibi is lying.
His lips are moving.
